On Thursday the 6th of April TRANSLIT attended the All-Ireland Business Summit at Croke Park, Co. Dublin (as mentioned in their blog: found here). This event offered a lot of new opportunities and connections for TRANSLIT. Our team spent the day networking with Ireland’s premium businesses while creating new connections with potential clients & customers, partners and peers. Also, we had the opportunity to hear from some of the top business leaders in Ireland.
TRANSLIT was very excited to attend this event for several reasons. For example, we had the opportunity to showcase our services to attendees from all over the country, we had access to several insightful talks & case studies and we also benefited from attending engaging speeches by business leaders, academics and experts in the field of business.
The agenda for the All-Ireland Business Summit was as follows; the event kicked off AT 8.00 with the Networking Breakfast with Bobby Kerr (Conference Chairperson) – Chairman Insomnia Coffee. The first Keynote session started at 9.00 and featured Declan Coyle – International Leadership Expert and author of The Green Platform, James Sweetman – Personal Development Expert and author and Miriam O’Callaghan who joined as Patron of Cliona’s Foundation. There was a discussion panel and questions after the talks.
After a short break the second Keynote session commenced at 11.00. This session was titled Scaling Your Business: Insights & Strategies. Hosting the session was Pádraic Ó Máille, CEO, MENTORS and panellists included Tommy Murray – Senior Executive, Ex Director of Diageo Plc, Ahmed Elafifi – Founder of Tranquini GmbH, Peter Casey – Founder of Claddagh Resources and Dragon’s Den star and Mick Crean – Founder of Mick’s Garage. The networking lunch began at 12:30. This was another chance for the attendees to relax and create connections amongst each other.
The third session included appearances from Chris Flack – CEO of UnPlug, Orlaith Carmody – Entrepreneur & Author of Perform As A Leader and Sinead Kane – Visually Impaired Athlete. Presenting the Business All-Stars Awards Ceremony which began at 2.45 was Bobby Kerr and Minister Mary Mitchell O`Connor. At 15:30 the fourth and final session ‘Network to Get Work’ took place. The final speaker wassAlec Drew – President of PSAI. The event concluded with some Networking drinks.
What We Did:
When TRANSLIT received the invitation from the All-Ireland Business Summit, we wanted to tell as many people as possible. We were then informed that we were entitled to two tickets worth €200. After a quick brainstorming session, we decided then to do something a little different. Realising that a simple social media post simply wouldn’t do, we decided to create a short video announcing the fact that we were giving away these tickets. We then created the competition on our Facebook page and updated all our social media accounts. To enter the competition all you had to do is like share and comment on the video.
Win tickets to the All Ireland Business Summit worth €200!

Attending the All-Ireland Business Summit gave TRANSLIT the chance to meet new customers and contacts. It also forced us to be more creative with our promoting of the event and making the video was a lot of fun. Additionally, if you visited our stall during the event, thank you very much and we hope to hear from you soon.
